5th Year Online Grinds
What happens if schools are forced to close again, will this effect my Online Grinds programme?
Regardless of any school closures, all Online Grinds programmes will proceed as scheduled. This is made possible as we have spent the entire Summer pre-recording all the video lessons to ensure these can be delivered whether schools are open or closed.
If I sign up to the Online Grinds programme will I be able to rewatch the videos lessons at a later date?
Yes, access to all your weekly 75-minute videos lessons will be available right up until June 1st 2021.
Will all 29x videos lessons be available to watch from the start of the year?
No, the videos lessons are provided weekly over the course of 29x academic weeks.
Is there a cut-off point to signing up for the Online Grinds programme?
No, although our Online Grinds programme commences on Monday 7th September, students can still sign up after this date. Our Online Grinds programmes are designed to be attended over 29x weeks so we advise students to sign up sooner rather than later as they’ll be able to manage the workload better.
Can I ask the teacher questions?
Yes, of course. Our Online Grinds programmes are a blend of pre-recorded and live content. Students can ask our teachers as many questions as they want during our regular live Q & A tutorial sessions and also at the live 5-hour workshop.
How and when do I get my notes?
Please allow at least 3 working days to receive your notes. There may be a scenario where you are granted access to our Online Grinds programme prior to the study notes arriving but we advise students to wait until they have the notes before commencing watching the video lessons.
Can you do these courses if you don’t live in Dublin?
Yes, you can watch the video lessons from the comfort and safety of your own home as they are online. You will also have hard copies of the notes so you don’t have to worry about printing them.
Can notes be delivered to anywhere in the country?
Notes can be delivered to anywhere in Ireland.
How will I view the Online Grinds programme?
Our Online Grinds programme will be hosted on our Moodle Platform. Prior to your online course commencement date, we will email you with your login details and passwords for this platform.
Do I need the study notes to get value from the videos lessons?
Yes, absolutely. Students who attempt to watch the videos lessons without the study notes will not get value from these video lessons as our teachers constantly refer to the notes constantly throughout. As such, we advise all students to follow the video lessons with the notes in front of them.
What happens if I share my logins to Moodle with another student who is not enrolled in the Online Grinds programme?
Our Online Grinds programmes are strictly only available to students who are enrolled with us. The Online Grinds programme is designed as a full support package containing pre-recorded videos, live tutorials, hard copies of our study notes and our live 5-hour workshop. Only students who are enrolled with us will experience the full benefits this programme has to offer. We have software in place to identify suspicious login activity and will revoke account access if we suspect a student is sharing logins with non-enrolled students.
Can I be logged on to the Online Grinds programme on more than one device at a time?
No, you will only be able to log on to our Moodle platform on one device at a time. If you try to log in on a second device, you will be automatically logged out on the first device.
Can you only view the videos once?
No, you can pause, rewind and rewatch all of the videos.
Will there be timetable clashes?
With our Online Grinds programme, there will be no timetable clashes at all, allowing unrestricted course choice and giving students the freedom to work through each course at their own pace and at a time that suits them.
